Passenger transport

For more than 140 years Unite has offered support to bus, coach, taxi, tram and rail workers in large and small companies.

Unite Legal Services has a reputation for taking action to defend its members. This is of paramount importance within the passenger transport sector where members work on busy public roads and where the number of accidents continues to increase.

Unite recognises the need for high quality training for our drivers and support staff. Working on a busy network of roads and railways across the UK, the danger of accidents is ever present.

It is your employer’s responsibility to ensure you receive the right training, support and protection to reduce the risk of accidents, injuries and illnesses so far as possible.

But, if the unthinkable happens, we can provide expert legal help.

Our specialist solicitors have run thousands of claims for workers in the passenger transport sector and have the expertise to help you to make a claim for compensation.
